There is growing recognition from policymakers, practitioners, and other experts that a limited security-oriented approach is insufficient for addressing the conditions that lead to rising violent extremism, and thus a more holistic, “whole of society” effort is needed to prevent and counter this threat.
Managing, reducing, and preventing the threat of violence while providing positive alternatives that foster pluralism, dignity, and human security, requires partnerships among a wide array of government and non-government stakeholders.
The Global Solutions Exchange (GSX)* serves as a durable mechanism for systematic and structured interactions among governments, multilateral organizations, and independent civil society actors with a track record in programming, analysis, gender perspectives or policy advocacy to build resilience against violent extremism.
The GSX seeks to bring policy makers and practitioners from different sectors and perspectives together to share knowledge and solutions. While we welcome this diversity of opinions as a means of reaching better outcomes, the views expressed at GSX events, by steering group members or other partners do not necessarily reflect the views of all such members and partners.
